I have been reading the posts in this forum and am at a complete loss as to how I can obtain and use POIs in my Garmin Nuvi 500. Every time I think I may be getting somewhere I find a reference to a free POI Loader. Every time I click on the link I arrive at a Garmin site for marine maps. I sent Garmin an email concerning this problem and the response indicated that POI Loader was only good for businesses (apparently to upload their point to the web).
I have attempted to just go ahead and click on a link to save a POI to my GPS but all I receive is an excel file with two columns containing numbers. What do I do with that?
